Have you heard of Thieve’s Oil? It’s an essential oil that many friends have recommended to me and I’ve been researching boosting immunity with Thieves Oil.
Boosting Immunity with Thieves Oil
Thieve’s Oil originated during Bubonic Plaque when “outbreaks decimated the population of Asia and Europe for the better part of a thousand years. Out of this period emerged a legend of four thieves who were captured and charged with robbing the dead and dying victims. When the thieves were tried, the magistrate offered leniency if they would reveal how they resisted contracting the infection as they performed their gruesome acts. They told of a special concoction of aromatic herbs, including garlic, cloves and rosemary, that they rubbed on themselves before committing their crimes.” You can read more here.
I’m trying really hard to keep my 16 month old healthy as we’re getting ready for her hip dysplasia surgery. She’s prone to colds in the winter and has a snotty little nose right now and a bit of a cough. In fact, last winter she wound up in the hospital with pneumonia. I tell you what, I’ve not had such an unhealthy child before! I’m treading new waters with her.
Here are my efforts at keeping us all healthy:
In addition to eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies, I’ve also beefed up my own vitamin intake because I’m still nursing her. I’m taking probiotics, a multi-vitamin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and fish oil. I’ve also limited my sugar intake and have starting using Thieve’s Oil. The cheapest I found for the Thieves Essential Oil by Young Living Essential Oils – 15 ml was on Amazon. So I ordered it and it arrived last week. Following the directions, I diluted a little into lotion and am massaging it on her feet at night. I also added some to our humidifier and have been running that at night as well.
I think everything I’m doing is helping her cough. We’re still working with the runny nose, but I’m encouraged right now by the improvements in her cough. Of course, I’m not a medical professional and I can’t attribute her improvements to anything in particular. I’m just sharing what we’re doing right now in case you’re also looking for ways to boost immunity. I really feel pressure to kick the runny nose and cough so she’s not rejected for surgery.
